Mumbai City FC claimed their first point against holders Chennaiyin FC in ISL history. The match ended in a 1-1 draw as Leo Costa scored a wonder-goal in the dying moments of the match.
Unsure Starting 11
Marco Materazzi rested Raphael Augusto for FC Pune City clash while John Arne Riise replaced Bernard Mendy in the defense.
Mumbai City FC handed debuts to Thoi Singh and Harmanjyot Singh Khabra. While Jeje started for the 2nd time under Materazzi.
A New Striker In Jeje
The Chennaiyin FC striker has already netted 2 goals in as may starts for Marco Materazzi. What he may lack in strength and physicality, Jeje surely has the instincts of a striker. David Succi may have to fight hard to regain his place in attack from the Indian starlet.
Cursed Duwayne Kerr?
The stopper for Chennayin FC who came in for Karanjit Singh has been blamed for conceding all of Chennaiyin’s 7 goals in 4 matches that he played. The defense is also not organised well enough to support the hapless keeper.
Chennaiyin FC lie in mid table as Mumbai City FC join leaders Atletico de Kolkata after a conclusion to the first half of a nerve wracking ISL season.
